Why does my ankle click?
Posted 05 March 2006 - 01:27 PM
I recently went on a trail run and have pulled up with my left ankle being rather sore.
Does anyone have any idea why my ankle might click? And could the soreness be related?
Thanks in advance.

However clicking combined with pain is a problem. This could be a sign of joint laxity where the ligaments can not keep the joint together. There is a simple clinical test of anterior-posterior glide that will show up any laxity. An inversion stress x-ray may also be helpful. If this exists then endurance activity could lead to osteo-arthritis.
My suggestion is you get it checked out by a podiatrist. For short term relief try oral anti-inflamatories and immersion icing. Glucosamine and Chondrotin Sulfate would not hurt either. You really need to do more then treating the current pain - so get it checked out.

I had clicky ankles since I was a kid, and have had no adverse affects from it. The only time they didn't click was when I got thrown 100 times in a row at Judo practise, and landed in the same spot on my ankle and calf 100 times in a row, and my entire ankle and calf swelled up with lots of fluid. It stayed non-clicky for a few months after that.
I wouldn't recommend this as a treatment method ;)

I wonder when/why that happened...
Perhaps I finally shocked it out of its noisy habit when I rolled it badly last year. Also not recommended.
My jaw still clicks though. :rolleyes:

ie, it may not be bone related but could be something else and could be sourced from an old injury.
